ROME, N.Y. – U.S. Air Force researchers are asking for industry's help in developing artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to planning systems that help commanders adapt quickly to changing conditions on the battlefield, writes John Keller for Military & Aerospace ElectronicsContinue reading original article

The Intelligent Aerospace take:

October 28, 2019-As the Air Force begins to operate in contested environments against peer and near-peer adversaries, the demands on planners and warfighters will increase quickly enough to require AI and machine learning decision support, researchers say.

Researchers are putting a priority on applying existing decision-support AI algorithms and machine learning methods to military strategies and complex battle simulations. Experts want to record and learn from subject matter experts and end-user warfighters through Air Force video games based on operational use cases.
